Julian Edelman will take his first official free agent visit Friday when he visits the Niners.
The wide receiver, who caught a team-high 105 passes last year for the Patriots (to go along with 1,056 yards and six touchdowns, all of which were career-highs), has reportedly turned down a three-year offer from the Patriots. He’s also reportedly being recruited to the Browns by quarterback Brian Hoyer, a former New England teammate.
The 5-foot-10, 198-pounder is a former college quarterback who made the switch to receiver after New England took him in the seventh round of the 2009 draft. The 27-year-old has played five years in the league, all with New England, and has 174 career receptions to go along with 1,770 yards and 10 touchdowns.
